Nigeria’s Vice President have weighted in favour of Jollof rice in the lingering battle of which African nation cooks the best of this delicacy.
This come some few days after the honorable Minister of Information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said on live TV that Senegal makes the best jollof rice, incurring the wrath of Nigerians.
Speaking at the Platform Nigeria, a church based programme in Lagos, Prof Yemi Osibanjo made it clear that Nigeria makes the best of this local delicacy.
Prof Osibanjo also commented on Senator Dino Melaye’s hit track, Ajeku Iyani.
“Nobody is as funny as Nigerians and Nigerian comedians whether professionals or amateurs.
“We even have a member of the National Assembly who recently launched a CD, Ajeku Iyani oje, who has heard of Aye ku Iyani oje. and we are the most innovative entrepreneurs. Recently someone showed me a text sent by a young man to invite him to a book launch with the title, Seven Steps to becoming a professional Whistle Blower. And we all know that Nigerian Jollof rice is the best.
“We beat the Ghanaians and Senegalese hands down,”he said.
